Although the conformal-scalar energy-momentum tensor does not satisfy the Dominant Energy Condition one may, by this means, still conclude that the ADM mass is positive. 3 Conformal Transformation of the Scalar Intrinsic Curvature55 5. Many interesting models incorporate scalar fields with non-minimal couplings to the spacetime Ricci curvature scalar. When a new metric is generated by conformal transformation the concern arises as to whether it is di erent from the original, or merely a coordinate transformation. 1 Conformal Mapping and Partial Differential Equations A point in the w-plane can be related to a given point in the z-plane with a func-tion.

Conformal Transformations By a conformal (or scale) transformation we mean a change in the metric given by g0 = exp[ˇ(x)]g , where ˇ is some arbitrary scalar field. 1 Symmetries of a Metric (Isometries): Preliminary Remarks. Such techniques allow us to obtain very interesting insights on the physical content of these transformations, when applied to non-standard gravity. For objets naturally associated with metric g (such as the Levi-Civita ∇, the curvature tensor R, Jacobi operator JR), we will use the self-explanatory symbols ∇¯,R,J¯ ¯ R denote the analogous objects corresponding to ¯g. 1) with = diag:( 1;1:::;1) the Minkowski at space metric or = the usual Euclidean metric.

I have a write-up of the conformal transformation of the Ricci scalar in Zee's notation attached in a pdf with all the gory details and it arrives at the correct result as given in Zee - the Ricci tensor is in most of the terms until I contract ##g^{bd}## so it would be very easy to read off most of the calculation and simplify the Ricci tensor. We find the vacuum field equations of the theory and analyze its weak-field approximation and Newtonian limit. Rademacher  proved Theorem 3. The actions for the theory are equivalent and equations of motion can be obtained from each action. In analogy to the f(R) extension of the Einstein-Hilbert action of general relativity, f(T) theories are generalizations of the action of teleparallel gravity.

Then the class of actions is determined for which Weyl-gauging may be replaced by a suitable coupling to the curvature (Ricci gauging). A conformal field theory (CFT) is a quantum field theory that is invariant under conformal transformations. A pseudo-Riemannian manifold of dimension n [greater than or equal to] 4 is called essentially conformally symmetric if it is conformally symmetric  (in the sense that its Weyl conformal tensor is parallel) without being conformally flat or locally symmetric. Suppose S is a C2. * Relationships: The metrics in the two frames are conformally related, g ab E = Ω 2 g ab J, and the dilatons are related by φ J = 1/GA 2 (φ E); Since the transformation is local Chisholm's theorem implies that the S-matrices are equivalent; The scalar-field transformation shows that the Einstein-frame theory can be considered as a sector of. A conformal transformation can now be de ned as a coordinate transformation which acts on the metric as a Weyl transformation. General Relativity (GR) is a successful relativistic theory of gravitation. 1 Minkowski limit 11 5. It is based on the concept that Maxwell’s equations can be written in a form-invariant manner under coordinate transformations, such that only the permittivity and permeability tensors are modified.
